I've been veeeeery quiet on this here blog of late. It's been a weird kind of month full of dance practice and birthdays and illnesses and general lack of routine. Feeling a bit out of sorts and creatively frustrated, and in need of inspiration.
That said, we have been doing some fun things at the studio and making some new product, which is keeping me happy. Can't wait to photograph them :)
Speaking of photos, here's some vintage goodies I've picked up recently!
Vintage finds - wooden crate and little stool
I have always ALWAYS wanted one of these "vacuum oil company" crates with their awesome lettering. But they were always stupidly expensive if I found them. But thanks to a little second hand shop in Lorne, I stumbled across one at a reasonable price. Yay!
I found the little stool at a little organic food/second hand market in Sydney - thank you to my friend Dan who drove it back to Melbourne for me a few months later. I might recover the top or just leave it as is.

- This interview with Loobylu over on the Design Files blog - testament to the fact that creative inspiration is ever changing and life can be full of a myriad of creative pursuits
- Sharing our studio space with lots of lovely ladies - Katrina, Mikaela and Stina are our extras this month :)
- damnyouautocorrect.com - many tears of laughter to be shed
